  • Using Electromagnetic induction to characterize soils - Case Study

    Electrical conductivity measurements have been used for years to determine salinity and moisture in soils. Probes were inserted directly into the soil to determine how well the soil conducted an applied current. This process was slow and labor-intensive and was usually reserved for scientific studies. A more recent technique for measuring conductivity is electromagnetic induction (EM), a ...

  • Clearing the air: the use of bio-oxidation for industrial air emissions control

    The wood products industry began rather ardous road to emissions control in the early 1990s with the first installation of a thermal oxidizer (an RTO) at a California MDF facility, for volatile organic compound (VOC) control. During the ensuing years, virtually every panel board facility has had to control emissions of VOCs, and up until the last few years, always with some sort of thermal ...


  • Industrial Hygiene: Quality Assurance In Air Sampling and Analysis

    Industrial hygiene is the recognition, evaluation, and control of chemical, physical, biological, and ergonomic stresses in the workplace. Of the stresses listed, chemical stresses in the form of air contaminants are the most common. Air contaminants, their PELs and TLVs, and how to sample for them, is Industrial Hygiene 101 for most industrial hygienists. However, as simple as sampling and ...


  • Air Pollution Control in the Flexographic Printing Industry

    A basic review of technologies used, and selection criteria to consider, to successfully control the VOC/HAP emissions exhausted from flexographic printing presses. Within the flexographic printing industry, the use of an Air Pollution Control System (APCS) to control harmful air pollutants is not new. Today, because of business expansion, modifications to plant operations, or changes in ...

  • How industrial air-cooled chiller rentals benefit you

    Summer will be here before you know it and with it will come soaring temperatures. Few other states know heat and humidity like the southern states, and going without cool air is simply not an option for their hardworking residents. For the people in these states, an industrial air-cooled chiller is a useful and viable option to keep ...

  • Modelling the air quality impact of industrial emissions over a valley in Southern Italy

    The aim of this study is to support decision makers and stakeholders in the management of air quality in an industrial area located in a valley in southern Italy, where neither air quality nor meteorological parameters are routinely monitored. The first phase focused on the inventory of emissions through monitored data at stacks, permissions to emit from local authorities, and life cycle ...
